Thundershirt giveaway

by Kristina Sloggett

in Giving Back

Happy Holidays!

Remember the review I recently wrote about Thundershirt? I told you it was not a sponsored post, that they didn’t know me or Basil.

Well, they do now! They got in touch with me after reading my review, and they have offered to send a Thundershirt to one lucky doggie who reads spabettie. I am really excited to be able to offer this, as I know how much it has helped our sweet Basil.

See? Basil likes his so much it makes his tail wag. The Thundershirt comes in many sizes and even after you pick the size that is right for your pup, it wraps and is adjustable, so it’s like a custom snug fit.

To read more about them, see my review.

Five ways to enter, please leave a comment for each:

1) What kind of dog do you have, and what is their name ?

2) Tweet this –>

have a pup that needs comfort? @spabettie is giving away a Thundershirt –> http://spabettie.com/?p=8867

3) Stumble this (icon below) and like it (and follow me if you’d like!)

4) follow spabettie on twitter

5) like spabettie on facebook

Enter through December 20. Winner emailed December 21.

Ahh! This is one I REALLY want, as my mom was just reading about these the other day as something we might try for Chauncey. I told her about your review, so she might splurge and try one out. (He tends to have anxiety and nothing really helps.)

Keeping my fingers crossed!

We have two long-haired doxies, both of whom are rescue pups as well!
One of them has anxiety problems; the vet said that he has OCD. Maybe this would help?

This would be perfect for our dog Bonaparte! He’s a stray that my mom took in – we think he’s half dachshund and half corgi. Originally he was TERRIFIED of men, but he’s warmed up to my dad and now they go everywhere together. He still gets nervous and reacts by being as fierce as he can – hence the name. But he’s a total sweetheart and I bet he’d LOVE a thundershirt!
